RE: [Histonet] Tissue processors/Recyclers

From:WILLIAM DESALVO



I have been a user of the Xpress for four + years. You first have to decie what is the primary reason to move to rapid tissue processing. Do you require continuous load or batch loading? do you require loading w/out  a clanining cylcle? my experience has directed me to using the Xpress because you can coninually load cassettes w/out waiting for a cleaning cycle to complete before loading another set of cassettes. I recommend the Xpress for the cotinuing load capability.

Peloris is a conventional  tissue processor with the capability of rapidly increasing the temperature to boil the 2-propanol at low pressure and 85║C (if you want to avoid using xylene).> Xpress has half the retorts (2 or 1 depending on the model) as a microwave assisted chamber, and the other half as a conventional tissue processor. The differences in price are also high. Peloris has two chambers and operate quite conventionally, Xpress is designed to have a constant flow of processed blocks every 1-2 hours. The impact on the schedule and working conditions of the laboratory makes them completely different instru> RenÚ J.> > --- On Wed, 9/24/08, Rathborne, Toni  wrote:> > From: Rathborne, Toni > Subject: [Histonet] Tissue processors/Recyclers> To: histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu> Date: Wednesday, September 24, 2008, 2:00 PM> > We are currently exploring the advantages of recycling our waste solutions as> well as a new tissue processor.
